This scholarship was established by the Center's Board of Advisors in 2001 to provide support to a third-year law student serving as an editor of the North Carolina Banking Institute Journal.

I credit the Center and its devoted supporters for generously imparting advice and support to Journal students like me. There is no greater illustration of the Center's support of Journal students than the Professor Lissa L. Broome Center for Banking and Finance Scholarship, and I am deeply honored to have been the recipient of the 2012-13 scholarship award."
